Storyline

As the world is in the middle of an industrial revolution, a monster appears that cannot be defeated unless its heart, which is protected by a layer of iron, is pierced. By infecting humans with its bite, the monster can create aggressive and undead creatures known as Kabane. On the island Hinomoto, located in the far east, people have built stations to shelter themselves from these creatures. People access the station, as well as transport wares between them, with the help of a locomotive running on steam, called Hayajiro. Ikoma, a boy who lives in the Aragane station and helps to build Hayajiro, creates his own weapon called Tsuranukizutsu in order to defeat the creatures. One day, as he waits for an opportunity to use his weapon, he meets a girl named Mumei, who is excused from the mandatory Kabane inspection. During the night, Ikuma meets Mumei again as he sees Hayajiro going out of control. The staff on the locomotive has turned into the creatures. The station, now under attack ...

An obvious Attack on Titan clone with many deformities
14 August 2016 | by (Pittsburgh PA) – See all my reviews

If you like poor writing, idiotic characters, implausible and copied plots (Yes, this does try to copy Attack on Titan), then this is the show for you! We have a lead character who is just implausibly stupid (I'm gonna test my gun instead of trying to flee the city.) As if the iron zombies are in short supply.... Then we get a 12 year old bi-polar ninja girl, and an antagonist who commits mass genocides for no real reason. No one trusts our Green haired protagonist until episode 4, despite him meeting all their demands and saving them several times. We are also forced to deal with a Steampunk element that is overplayed and uninteresting, especially in this world of over- used tropes (including Zombies! We don't have enough shows with zombies!) Want a shitty gore fest till something decent comes on? Then this 4hr season will kill your time and IQ.
